Mediflix understands that your privacy is important to you and that you care about how your Personal Information (“PI”) is used and shared online. We respect and value the privacy of everyone who visits this Mediflix Platform, and will only collect and use PI in ways that are described here (whether or not you have an account with us), and in a manner that is consistent with our obligations and your rights under the law.

What information we collect about you and why:
We may collect two types of information: PI and information that is not personally identifiable (“Non PI”). Please note that we will not sell your PI to anyone.
What PI Do We Collect?
- When you register or subscribe with Mediflix, we may ask for information such as your first name, last name and e-mail address. We also acquire your Internet protocol address and/or mobile device identification, which certain jurisdictions consider to be PI because it could be used to identify an individual or device if it were combined with other identifying information. To be clear, Mediflix uses PI to engage in location analysis, user experience tracking and other Platform related functions.
- We may capture user information when users send us questions or comments via e-mail. Information collected in this manner will only be used to contact the user and/or respond to the user’s inquiry/issue. Sending us an e-mail will not enroll you on our e-mail list unless you specifically request it.
- For subscriptions or purchases made through the Mediflix Platform, Mediflix may use a thirdparty payment processor which will collect your full name, e-mail address, postal address, contact details and credit or debit card information (“Billing Information”). This record will be stored and processed in the United States and other countries (see further below under “How we use information about you” and “How we store and process information about you”). By making a purchase, you grant to us and to all other persons and entities involved in the operation of the Mediflix Platform, the right to use, store, monitor, retrieve and transmit your account information in connection with the operation of the Mediflix Platform and as otherwise provided herein. You also agree that such access and use of your PI is governed by their privacy policies. We are not responsible or liable for the content, activities or privacy policies of any third-party sites. Accordingly, please refer to their respective privacy policies.
- We generally do not request on or through the Mediflix Platform other information that is often considered “highly sensitive,” such as other financial account information (e.g., credit report information, bank account numbers), personal health information (Mediflix is neither a covered entity nor a business associate under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended “HIPAA” and therefore has not direct or indirect obligations under that law), or government issued identification (e.g., your social security card, driver’s license, or passport), although we reserve the right to do so when such information is necessary to verify your Billing Information.
- We take reasonable precautions to protect the confidentiality and security of your PI by using industry recognized security safeguards such as site monitoring, secured networks and servers, firewalls and/or encryption. When you enter PI (including personal health information), we encrypt the transmission of that information and/or use SSL connections (Secure Socket Layer) technology. Your credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the Internet is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your PI within industry standards, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
- We may also obtain your PI through your use of Mediflix Communities on third party social media platforms depending on your settings or the privacy policies of the third party social media platform. To change your settings on these services, please refer to their respective privacy notices.
The information we collect through the Mediflix Platform:
- User-provided Information. When you use the Mediflix Platform, Mediflix collects information including name, e-mail address, mailing address, mobile phone number, and credit card or other billing information. PI also includes other information, such as date of birth, geographic area, or preferences, when any such information is linked to information that identifies a specific individual.

Some of this code may remain on your Devices and may be used by your browser or Devices on subsequent visits to the Mediflix Platform. This allows us to "remember" what you have done on the Mediflix Platform before and personalize the Mediflix Platform for you.
